Women in Technology
Women in Technology Discussion Group: In order to stay updated on the quick-paced world of technology, meetings are held every Monday for girls to discuss current events in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematical) fields. The group allows people to embrace the STEM fields while ignoring stereotypes. Everyone is welcome!
Meeting Activity: Every week, different members of the club choose an article, video, or section from a book to discuss at the meetings. Bring your lunch and join in the conversation! Everyone is welcome.
When: Meetings are held every Monday during lunch in Mr. Bergquist’s room, 115a.
